tonight. harry, i know this was the crackdown everyone was dreading. >> reporter: i'll tell you what, katie, last friday was a bloody and deadly day for pro-democracy demonstrators here in tripoli. and today everyone was wondering what would happen after midday prayers? at a mosque near green square, men prayed today, perhaps for their friends and loved ones who were beaten and shot just a week ago by moammar qaddafi's security forces. as prayers were about to end, about 150 pro-qaddafi supporters marched to the mosque shouting "allah, qaddafi, libya." as some worshipers tried to slide quietly away, a man whispered to me, "please tell the truth." one man who came out of the mosque said "we expected this. we know they've all been paid." i said "can you talk to us?", and he said "no, everyone here is afraid." as more worshipers came outside, they shouted "freedom, freedom."
